The mayor who wanted it is gone. The developer who built it is gone. And the plans to build around it are on hold. But finally, after a year of delay, Hartford’s new minor league baseball stadium is about to have its first minor league game.
This hour, we talk about the Hartford Yard Goats, Dunkin’ Donuts Park, and their futures in Connecticut's capital city. We also introduce you to a new WNPR podcast about the team's first season at home.
